PALACE OF THE WORLD, by                    
First Line: The sky opened unresistingly
Last Line: The storm that calls.
Alternate Author Name(s): Romains, Jules
Subject(s): Clouds; Sky; Storms

The sky opened unresistingly
To fleet clouds;
There was gaiety—

We must find summer
Reared on four columns,
A day high-vaulted
Where footfalls resound.

Not these false vapours
That a festival
Or a fair chance that befalls
Seem to send into the sky—

That at once descry
And far off hail
The storm that calls.
